Storyline

Ross is eager to have everyone ready well in time for his 8 PM speech at the museum's benefit, but they all have other priorities then getting dressed. Joey childishly steals Chandler's armchair while he used the bathroom, and obstinately keeps sitting in it, in the process getting a stain on Phoebe's dress; when finally chased, Joey takes the pillows with him, Chandler retorts by stealing all Joey's underwear, Joey takes sordid vestimentary revenge... Monica freaks when she hears an answering machine message from Richard, even although it's probably ancient, and keeps making it worse abusing his code... Worst of all is Rachel, who takes forever to pick an outfit till Ross insists she should hurry up, never mind what she wears, then she refuses to go altogether, until Joey's flippant suggestion is taken seriously...

Trivia

This episode was a tribute to what became some of the great strengths of the show. For budget reasons early on in the series most of the episodes were done on the regular sets, and the writers had to work at creating scripts to fit the locations they had with infrequent guest casts. Ultimately these became hallmarks of the show and are part of what made Friends so great. This episode celebrates that with just the six main characters in the apartment. See more »

Quotes

[Ross tries picking out a dress for Rachel]
Ross: Look, I'm sorry, I thought it looked pretty.
Rachel: Ross, that was a Halloween costume, unless you would like me to go to this thing as Little Bo Peep.
Ross: Look, I didn't recognize it without that inflatable sheep.
Rachel: Yeah, which, by the way Chandler, I would like back one of these days.
Chandler: We used them as pillows when we went camping.
Ross: What?
Chandler: [shyly] The sheep.
Ross: Hey, what you do on your own time...

A great episode that only features the six man characters and one set, the girls apartment set in real time.

Plot In A Paragraph: Ross is being honoured at a fancy awards ceremony and he stresses out as people don't seem to be as keen to get their on time. Rachel struggles to find something to wear, Joey and Chandler argue over a seat and Monica freaks out when she hears a message off Richard and does not know if its old or new.

David Schwimmers character comes off as really annoying here, I know he is stressed but the way he shouts at Rachel is ridiculous as him saying he does not care if any of his other friends go.

FYI Aniston looked great in EVERY outfit she tried on
